Theresa Dale. End Table. January 29th , 2018.
If you do have small end tables that are open, you may want to consider adding a contrasting linen or lace piece to the top and even have it extend over and down the sides some. This will give your table a bit more bulk without taking up added space. For really small homes, you can eliminate one of the end tables entirely. While its nice to have end tables on both ends for convenience and balance, there is no hard and fast rule requiring this. You may be able to make due with a single table and perhaps add a floor lamp on the other side to add light and even things out visually.
Round end tables can also break up the straight lines of a room, particularly if you have a sectional with a square coffee table, or a sofa and loveseat paired with a traditional rectangle set of coffee and end tables. A round table, either on a single end of the upholstered furnishings or both sides, offers the eyes a nice surprise. One of the great things about these tables is the variety you can find. Not only are round end tables available in a variety of styles, but also materials, including wood, metal, marble, glass and resins. Once you add in the different colors, grains, stains and finishes, you can get a table in just about any look you want.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself. While its easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isnt the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
Its amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. Its not that one is inferior to the other. Rather, it creates a different look to a room, all because a certain material was chosen. The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries, metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure, since there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from. One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you dont have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design, just different sizes. If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
